Following on from the record-breaking success of Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic, Mickey Mouse and his band of friends, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy will be returning to the Qatar National Convention Centre with an exciting new stage show, Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival, from February 12 – 16.
The Fab-four will be performing in a music mash-up of mega proportions where concert goers will hear the greatest hits from the blockbuster movies of Disney’s Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, and Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story remixed to rock, pop, reggae, hip-hop, jazz and country, among other jams. Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival is the sixth incarnation of Disney Live! since its creation in 2004.
It recently completed a tour of Turkey and Cyprus with a cast of local performers. This is the first time the show will play in Doha. Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival, featuring an all-star line-up of more than 25 Disney characters, begins with audiences watching a state-of-the-art video projection of the frenzy backstage which spills onto the stage as Mickey Mouse welcomes guests to his concert tour.
Soon thereafter, they will be transported to a new world of hip hop beats, dizzying acrobatics, flying carpets and magical transformations with Aladdin, Jasmine and Genie. Underwater is where the crowd will meet up with Ariel, Sebastian and their nautical pals to groove to the reggae rhythm. And, family and friends will stomp to the beat as Woody, Buzz and Jessie teach them how to boogie rodeo-style.
“We’ve created an environment where audience members will be able to connect with the Disney stars,” said Alana Feld, Producer and Executive Vice President of Feld Entertainment. “Within each concert moment are elements of personal interaction and the audience will be harmonizing, dancing, laughing and having an outrageously good time with the characters.”
